When I were a lad...
I have a lovely fix-all at the end of this...
I did "The Real Thing(TM)" in many various ways back in the 1990s (nothing deliberately harmful)
A small example would be by-passing the piracy protection schemes used at the time so I could play [insert name of a game].
Oddly enough I had cause to use the skills, perfectly legally, later in my career
One of several examples...
I once worked for a very populat printed computer magazine who wanted to give away a certain piece of software on the cover of their next issue. I was prsented with a floppy disk and asked if I could 'nobble' it so they could put it on the 125,000 magazines.
Naturally, no longer being an irresponsible kid, checked out the legallity and got written permission to do, what was essentially, illegal.
They put it on the magazine and it did very well...
Later in life I know far more than I did then, I am far more 'dangerous' now than I was 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago.
It took me 30 years to aquire the knowledge I have today - that's what makes me 'dangerous'
I play with the Internet these days, not games (OK, MSC is annoyingly addictive) and my skills in this area are just as honed.
I'm far from a kid anymore and, as such, I'm more than aware of the effects that any actions I perform may have on a third party - i.e. maturity and responsibiity - I use my skills beneficially for others these days.
The average Western PS3 / X360 / Wii junkie wouldn't have the inclination to even bother learning the skills I learned all those years ago as they're too busy playing this week's hot game (todays kid mentality superbly demonstrated by certain South Park episodes)
Deluge Asia, and Russia etc with free games consoles and games and the problem vanishes rather quickly
Whos left to kill the Internet after you do that?
